ICAS 2019 Testing

The Heights SchoolNews & Events

The ICAS testing procedure has changed to an online format in 2019 and a representative from the University of NSW is visiting us later in March to explain the new process.

All ICAS tests in 2019 will be in September so there will be plenty of time to inform parents/caregivers of the changes and organize test payments.

We will notify everyone of the new requirements after our meeting with the representative later this term.
